Brody Clarke is the Sherlock Holmes Athlete of the Week

    By Connor Hood on December 3, 2018

    In one of his best weekends as a Golden Bear, fourth-year forward Brody Clarke led his team to a series sweep of the Thompson Rivers WolfPack in Kamloops. Because of his stellar performance, Clarke was named the Sherlock Holmes Athlete of the Week. 

    Clarke finished the weekend with 50 combined points and 19 rebounds, as the Bears finished their first half with a 7-3 record. Clarke also extended his Canada West lead in rebounds per game, which stands at 11.7 per contest. 

    The Toronto, ON product was incredibly efficient on Friday night, finishing with 20 points on 7-11 shooting, adding five boards and one steal. Clarke was utterly dominant on Saturday, finishing with a season-high 30 points, while also adding 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks. 14 of his points came in the second half, as he also helped the Bears erase a third-quarter deficit. 

    Saturday’s game was also his conference-leading eighth double-double. 

    The Golden Bears will return to Canada West action in early January, as they host the Manitoba Bisons at Saville Community Sports Centre.
